    Yes. I loved it .

    More I sit and think , the more I don’t like the curve just under the rear of the control plate cavity . I got it too fat there.


    Also, I want to hit the edge again ever so slightly with darker stain. Like 1/4-1/2” just around the edge .

    Plays great ! Love the Baja neck . Took a bit of getting used to . Little buzzing going on , I will address this next time I assemble .

    Just bolting everything together , it plays and feels nice Considering I did zero setup work .

    Two days of applying poly. Was going to do nitro and made a last minute adjustment .

    Minwax gloss wipe on! The first coat on all sides was applied with 1500 grit sandpaper .

    Subsequent coats with a Hanes t shirt cloth !

    Wow, CJ, I just found this thread. That is coming out great. I love the burst; very violin-y. Nice job on the ferrules, too. Congrats.

    Thanks Blue Bill! This has been a learning experience and something I want to do more of !!! It’s turned out well considering my lack of knowledge . I get lucky I guess !


    This is it this morning . I’m thinking it’s time to wet sand a bit and see where we should go next !

    I only see one hiccup on the poly , it’s on the back in the curve near the top
    Edge . May need some attention.
